Zambia will be different - Mbesuma



Orlando Pirates forward Collins Mbesuma says skeptics will soon see a different Zambia team despite a recent run of poor results.

Zambia have recorded poor results in their five pre-Nations Cup 2013 matches, losing three and drawing two friendly games.

"We will be a different team when the tournament starts," Mbesuma said.

"We know what the people are expecting from us when we start the games."

Zambia kicked off their friendly series with a 2-1 away loss to Saudi Arabia on December 5.

They followed this up with another away defeat against Tanzania, three days before Christmas.

Angola later beat Zambia 2-0 on January 5 in Johannesburg.

The African champions showed signs of improvement with two scoreless draws against Angola and Norway on January 8 and 12 in Johannesburg and at home in Ndola respectively.

Zambia face Ethiopia in their tournament opener on January 21.
